Seven Reasons Why You Should Never Ever Befriend a Senior as an Underclassman

Seven Reasons Why You Should Never Ever Befriend a Senior as an Underclassman

1. Senioritis is contagious. You'll start to near finals week when you need to focus and pass your classes. But the seniors want to play. They give zero f*cks at this point. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday nights are definitely fair game for going out. You can't really communicate with them because they sleep from 7a to 6pm when it's time to go out again. Oh well, you'll sleep when you're dead.

2. They're terrible influences. They're drunk a lot and they will always want more to drink. It might be in the form of a margarita, a glass of wine, or a beer. It might be at a party, during a meeting, or on a random Wednesday night, but those b*tches love alcohol.

3. They might aggressively claim you as one of their humans (could be the booze talking). Watch out for signs: they'll start by calling you their nugget, they'll take you to parties where they introduce you to their friends as their Little (regardless of whether you're actually affiliated with the same Greek chapter), then you'll just get sucked in because who doesn't want multiple Bigs?

4. You always look dumb next to them because they know way more about life and love. They're always right about your future whether it's in regards to academics, relationships, or general happiness. They turn into literal fortune cookies the moment they hit senior year so if you aren't a fan of prophesy, definitely avoid those smart cookies.

5. Once they start talking, it's really hard to leave. Get comfy with that glass of wine on their couch because you've got things to learn, plans to discuss, and memories over which to reminisce.

6. They're very bossy and make travel plans for you so that they can guarantee visitors when they move away. California, Florida, Taiwan: you'll experience them all because it would just be too tragic for your friends to stay in the Midwest.

7. On the last day of classes, you'll experience this gut-wrenching emotion that evolves from separation anxiety, loneliness, and nostalgia. Symptoms include tears, numbness, and a constant need to be with people. The only remedy is to scroll through old pictures and constantly text them to remind them how much you love them (as if they forgot since you told them an hour earlier).

Hanging with the big kids is a huge risk. It's not for the faint-hearted. But if you want to make exceptional friends who will stand by you even when they graduate, please ignore my advice. Allow them to change your life. Because among the negative effects, you'll find that they're the once-in-a-lifetime people, life coaches, and forever friends.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
